Former Clemson football star Deshaun Watson is preparing for his rookie season in the NFL after leading the Tigers to a national championship victory over Alabama earlier this year.
While Watson’s focus is on helping the Houston Texans moving forward, he will still be paying attention to his alma mater.
Recently, Watson discussed how he thinks the Tigers will perform in 2017 without him leading the offense and he seems to believe Clemson fans having nothing to be concerned about.
“I have high expectations for them,” Watson said, via Will Vandervort of The Clemson Insider.
“Of course, another run at an ACC championship, another run at the College Football Playoff, and then we will go from there.”
Kelly Bryant is expected to be the man who takes over for Watson under center, so he has some big shoes to fill and major expectations to live up to.
Clemson opens its 2017 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Kent State.
